Have a hard time smiling before you drink your first cup of coffee in the morning? No more. Let this quotation from knitting humorist Stephanie Pearl-McPhee help you start your morning with a smile. :)

"The only things that will survive the apocalypse are cockroaches, twinkies, and Red Heart Supersaver."

Are you a yarn snob? This mug is for you! And what a great gift for a knitter with a sense of humor. It's one of a trio of mugs with quotations on knitting from some of the wisest.... and funniest knitting writers of our time: Stephaie Pearl-McPhee, Tracey Ullman, and the mother of modern knitting, Elizabeth Zimmermann.

This newly purchased white porcelain mug is decorated with hand lettering. The calligraphy is written with a black ceramic pen then baked. It is sturdy and resistant to dish washing. Each mug is individually hand lettered, so each one will vary slightly.

The 4 inch high mug hold 10 ounces of liquid.

The author of the quotation (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee) is written on the back of the mug.

This mug is right-handed. If you'd prefer your quotation to be readable when holding the mug in your left hand, please message me at the time of purchase. Allow 2-3 days.

The mug may be washed by hand or in a dishwasher. The manufacturer of the ceramic paint pen says it is "dishwashing resistant." I recommend washing it GENTLY BY HAND -- I recently had a customer lose bits of paint running it through a dishwasher on the "eco wash" cycle. If washed by hand, do not scrub the hand lettering with abrasives.

If you are interested in a custom mug, please convo me. I am happy to produce a mug with your favorite saying or quotation.

Shipping is via USPS Priority Mail in a well-packed sturdy box. Delivery confirmation included.

Lettered by hand in a smoke free home.
